    Hey everyone. My girls (6 of them) are 6 months tomorrow. They are 2 NHR's, 2 RIR, and 2 BR. This morning the friendliest of them all, we call her Daisy, was squawking up a storm. She started at about 630 am and continued for at least an hour. We thought maybe she was getting ready to lay her first egg, but so far nothing. Is this behavior that chickens display before they are about to lay? Just wondering... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    She may have seen something that scared her, most likely. A rodent, a squirrel, cat, you name it. She also may have been really ticked at one of the others. That sound serves a lot of situations, not just egg laying.
